ThermiVa® is an FDA-approved vaginal tightening treatment that involves no downtime and is available at The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. It uses a wand-like device that releases radiofrequency energy to gently heat the external and internal genitalia, resulting in a tighter and more youthful feminine area. Radiofrequency energy triggers increased production of collagen, which is the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues that gives them strength and firmness.
The Causes of Vaginal and Labial Sagging
Vaginal deliveries and advancing age are the most common culprits behind laxity (sagging) of the external and internal genitalia. Unfortunately, this issue results not just in decreased aesthetics, but also painful intercourse, inadequate vaginal lubrication, urinary incontinence, and even irritation and discomfort as the sagging labia rubs against clothing.
Effects of Vaginal Tightening with ThermiVa®
ThermiVa® not only results in aesthetic improvements. Take note that patients have also reported increased sexual pleasure because of better “traction” during intercourse and increased vaginal lubrication. Occasionally, the treatment also improves incontinence and irritation from urine. This is particularly true if your feminine area is often in contact with urine leak, which is known to cause intense irritation and even infection.
Virtually anyone who has loose external genitalia and vaginal canal, which may lead to other issues such as incontinence and discomfort, is a good candidate for this FDA-approved vaginal tightening treatment. Due to the non-invasive nature of the treatment, patients with a medical condition that precludes them from having an elective surgery may be able to choose this treatment instead.
Unique Benefits of ThermiVa®
Unlike some vaginal rejuvenation procedures, ThermiVa® does not entail downtime. In fact, you can resume all your normal activities, including sexual intercourse, on the same day as your treatment. Also, it does not entail the use of local anesthesia during the treatment. After all, it comes with a temperature controlled radiofrequency generator that delivers precise heat energy without causing discomfort, injuries, and burns.
